What is your favorite T n R method? I know some of you have several.

I recently saw Chris Hanowell's. Anyone have any reviews on his?

Carl Hein has a beautiful one but some of the aspects are hard to find. I don't do it myself but have seen it up closely.

One of the best looking I've ever seen.

By the way, I've seen many that were impressive and which one looks the best (as far as fully restoring the card) is not always most important to me. How the Magician frames the effect they can do can make what they do look great because they leave you with proof that something happened. Wayne Houchin's Counterfeit Hollingworth is a good example of this.

Ease of getting the materials, handling and angles, how close the spectator can be, etc... all have to be taken into account in choosing a favorite.

I'm very fond of Ripped and Fryed.
My honorable mentions would probably go to:

Torn - Garcia
Reparation - Lovick
Reformation - Hollingworth

Seeing Hollingworth do Reformation on TV many years ago had a big influence on me, and this has been one of my favorite plots ever since then. I've looked at a bunch of TnR routines, and only scratched the surface of what's out there. Ripped and Fryed is not necessarily the most impressive visually, but I love the way the story flows, and the routining and cleanup etc are a lot more clean than what you might expect in TnR.

Dynamike, I had faith that others would join in. Another good torn and restored is in the Mark Wilson book.

The Williamson one makes sense---You find the wrong selected card and tear it up...

I'm partial to Charlie Fry's. I can't remember the name...maybe Ripped and Repaired...something like that.

As a spectator I like Reformation by Guy Hollingworth...as a performer Ultimate Rip Off by Paul Harris is interesting !

My go to has always been Paul Harris' Ultimate Rip-Off since no prep is needed. I have been working on my own recently, which has been getting some really good reactions.

I have to say, I have a fondness for JC Wagner's Torn and Restored card.

I haven't done it in public myself (lack of nerve) but I've seen him do it quite a few times and it was wonderful. Old methods are not always dated.

The 2 that I do is Williamson and Tommy wonders. In most cases I do the latter because it fits my character and only out one card.

The Tommy Wonder version is Paul Harris' Ultimate Rip Off, the method I prefer. Steve Reynolds has a nice handling for this effect published in Magic.

There is so much versions ! An entire huge book could be devoted to this plot alone.
I don’t do it yet. Thanks for the cited good examples.
Thé Williamson’s one is in his Williamson wonders ?
